|ARM Enables Energy-Aware Coding with the ARM Energy Probe and DS-5 Toolchain |
February 28, 2012 -- ARM has announced a new tools solution to promote widespread energy-efficient software optimization across the Linux and Android communities. The new ARM Energy Probe is used by the ARM Streamline Performance Analyzer to capture power-consumption data alongside software activity. This helps developers visualize and optimize the impact of their software on the system energy footprint.
The solution, based on the ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5) toolchain, offers reduced total cost of ownership and simplified setup to permit wide deployment among application and system software developers. The Energy Probe does not depend on additional in-circuit emulators or trace units and can monitor up to three power rails simultaneously, correlating in time power data, processor performance counters, OS performance metrics, and software hotspots.
